Less than a year after converting a community hospital into a cancer center, Salick Health Care Inc. is planning to close its Westlake facility by Aug. 11, officials confirmed Friday. Salick physicians and employees said they learned in a meeting Thursday that the center would be shut down and the building that once housed Westlake Medical Center could be sold. Salick officials blamed, in part, a restrictive deed that prohibits the firm from expanding beyond a few specialty services.

The sale of Westlake Medical Center must take place immediately, a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge ruled Thursday, despite the reluctance of owner Columbia/HCA to pass the deed to Salick Health Care Inc.

The Salick Specialty Hospital that opened last year in the onetime Westlake Medical Center should not be affected by the recent decision to oust the firm's namesake founder, except that it could bring a competing cancer center to the region, officials said. Dr. Bernard Salick, unexpectedly booted last week by the British firm that purchased Salick Health Care Inc., is now eyeing the Westlake area as a potential site for one of many new cancer centers he hopes to open, his lawyer said Tuesday.
